After a devastating car wreck, British actor Jim Tavaré was left in critical condition. According to Fox News Entertainment, Jim’s wife Laura stated, “He’s currently in ICU intensive care”
“He has 15 broken ribs, fractures in both breastbones. Also a punctured lung, multiple breaks in his right leg, and a broken neck.”
Now, as he continues to heal his body from the car wreck, Jim — who is known by many for his role as The Leaky Couldron’s landlord, Tom, from the Harry Potter movies — gets a special surprise at the hospital.
In the video below, posted on March 20, 2017, Jim is wheeled out of the hospital by a nurse. As he rolls through the automatic doors, he is immediately hit by the sunshine.
They approach a small, fluffy dog named Mr. Kippy, who was with Jim during the wreck.
Once the actor lays eyes on his beloved dog, he completely loses it.
Mr. Kippy jumps up to greet Jim and ends up on his lap to lick his owner’s face.
It’s clear that these two have missed each other a ton while Jim was in intensive care to treat his injuries.
Soon, the survivor breaks down with his adorable dog in his arms. He is overcome with emotions during their long-awaited reunion.
“Today Jim was able to get into a wheelchair for the first time and was taken outside the hospital to be reunited with his dog ‘Mr. Kippy’, who was with him at the time of the accident,” reads a statement on the actor’s Facebook page.
The statement notes that the music played in the clip “was performed and dedicated to Jim by dear friend and talented composer Bernard Salles with the Orchestre Symphonique du Sud-Ouest.”
